Eskom is certainly not innocent, but the government is much more to blame for the current state of affairs. If you look here and here, you'll see that Eskom warned the government way back in 1997 that we will not have enough generation capacity by 2007. The government chose to ignore that warning and even subsequently admitted to it.It's up to Eskom to do their job and manage their affairs properly to ensure adequate supply. It's well known that their management is poor.
If they start to manage their business properly and they still can't meet supply, then they have a problem with their generating capacity. This wouldn't be a problem if they'd managed their affairs properly over the past 20 years, but it is because, once again, they can't manage to save their lives.
Eskom, wake up to the facts. We have an energy problem because you cannot manage your business. The end.
Fsck you you useless parasites. It was up to you to build sufficient power capacity with the money from all the tax payers.
